Today we are back to looking like we live in a snow globe.
I got to meet the new Simwaka! Little Shirley was about three weeks old when I got to see her. I lived with Amanda for a year, went on road trips with her to: Sad Diego, Monterey Bay, and New York City, she was in my wedding almost three years ago and I got to be in her wedding last April. It was fun to get to see Shirley while she is so little! Caleb and Kali May thought Shirley was soooooo cute! The whole time I was there they kept saying how she was so little and cute and that they couldn't wait to hold her again :)
I also got to hang out with Sara and her kids a lot! They are so kind to open up their home to me anytime I'm able to be out there. I've known Sara since we were .. what... 3 months old? Scott is very kind in letting be part of the family! It's easier to let me than to be forced I guess ;)
Jessa was about three weeks old the last time I saw her! I was preparing myself to the fact that she might not warm up to me too fast but I was also dying to get her in my arms. She didn't take too long to decide I was okay. Pretty soon she would hand me her fuzzy blanket and cuddle with me. She is about 18 months and doesn't say a whole lot. She can make it known what she wants without words! Look at those eyes!
It was so good to get to CA and to see landscape that wasn't covered in snow! I'm so thankful that my husband surprised me with this trip!
Next time though, he must come with me! He is just so fun to be around :)
